Both come to the Sixth Avenue South facility with strong backgrounds in leadership, population health, and patient experience.

“Creating a community where healthcare is the number one priority to every single person in Jefferson County is where our plan starts” said Berkley. “Advancing care with unparalleled service will drive Cooper Green on the path to success.”

Krueger said, “We are excited for the future of Cooper Green, and to continue our mission of serving this community. A high company morale will be vital to our mission in delivering the highest quality care and best patient experience.”

The two plan to lead the change in cultivating a culture of service, quality and excellence through their extensive knowledge of healthcare, patient care, and patient satisfaction.

Founded in 1972, originally named Mercy Hospital, the facility was renamed after a former mayor of Birmingham to Cooper Green Mercy Health Services. The site offers both primary and specialty care, in addition to behavioral health and urgent care. It has an on-site pharmacy, radiology, and clinical laboratory.
